Only a few yards from quai Berigny, but offering freshly cooked food far superior to the microwaved dishes offered in tourist restaurants overlooking the port. The exterior is unprepossessing, but inside it has the air of a traditional café/brasserie with check tablecloths and old posters on the walls. The proprietor - sporting an impressive moustach - is attentive and friendly and the service is professional. He offers a single menu with 4 courses for 18.50 euros, with only two choices of starter and main course which vary according to the market.
During our visit he was offering home made chicken paté or vegetable quiche as entrées, both of which were excellent. For main course there was a choice of roast lamb hock served with couscous or fish poached in burgundy served with boiled potatoes. The lamb was well cooked but I could have done with a bit more sauce with the couscous. The fish in red wine was unusual but worked really well and the pichet of burgundy that we had with the meal went well with both the fish and the lamb. The cheese was a good selection and all perfectly ripe. There was a choice of about 4 desserts.
Overall, I liked the ambience and think it offers good value.
